Recommended procedure for installing Debian GNU/Linux 11 (bullseye) on ARM64-based machines
If you want to run Linux on ARM64-based machines, Debian GNU/Linux is an excellent distribution choice. Due to its universal concept, it works great on laptops, workstations and servers alike. Unfortunately, Debian officially supports only a small number of ARM64-based machines (12 at the time of writing). Yet, you can run Debian unmodified on a lot more ARM64-based machines - if you manage to install it. After discussing some basics and showing how to check the support status for a particular machine, this article describes my recommended way for performing the actual installation using a concrete example.
